GENRE: Literary Fiction / Romance/ Dark Fiction

BLURB:
 
The Denemer's had it all: Fame, fortune, family, and the American Dream. But tough times have landed on their doorstep— Gerri's acting career is mired in controversy, financial decline is strangling the family bond, and his marriage to Kelli Anne is on the rocks. He'd rather die than face another catastrophe, something the Devil is more than eager to assist. On the night Gerri attempts to end his suffering, his plan is thwarted by a voice in his smart TV, pulling him into a dimension where past, present, and future collide, and the fate of the human race hangs in the balance. But Gerri is not alone. The Devil's minions are nipping at his heels and Kelli is right behind them, determined to save her family and put right what has gone wrong. Will they be successful? Is the bond between husband and wife strong enough to defeat evil? Will they prevent World War III or will evil's plan triumph? Presenting the Marriage of Kelli Anne and Gerri Denemer: A Horror Story, is a tour de force thriller of dark fiction, romance, and horror in an epic battle between good and evil.

EXCERPT:
He ran to the house, struggling through the wind that sought to push him over, to deter him from entering that house. 

“No, Gerri,” the chaperone hollered. “Do NOT go in there!”

But Gerri quickened his pace.

The chaperone was in front of him.

He turned to go around him.

The chaperone was in front of him.

He jerked to the left, running at max speed.

The chaperone was in front of him, pushed Gerri to the ground. Picked him up and clasped Gerri’s shoulders with an iron hand.

“It’s not allowed, Gerri.”

“What’re you talking about? I just want to go home.”

The chaperone laughed. He started pacing, circling Gerri with his hand on Gerri’s shoulder.

“What do you think, Gerri, hang yourself and you get to go back home? No, no, no, Gerri. Look around you. You’re not even close to home!”

“What? That can’t be!”

“Between worlds, Gerri! That’s where you are. What’s in that house is nothing. Nothing more than the slither of energy you left, the portal of death with the stink of fear. You’re not welcome there. Not welcome at all.” He slipped his hand off Geri’s shoulder. Stepped an arm’s length away from him.

“No, no, no, this can’t be! This can’t be.”

“Oh, yes, Gerri, it can, and it is.”

The chaperone paused.

“It’s best that you come with me Gerri.”

Gerri screamed, “Where did I go wrong?”

The chaperone stiffened.

He turned to the house and paused.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:



Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
For this particular book, Presenting the Marriage… the intended audience is anyone who enjoys a story that blends the dark and the light with an inspirational message while enjoying a mysterious and suspenseful journey where information is discovered over time in an effort to catapult the reader into the light in one of those, “Hmmm,” moments that drive a pause with the thought, “Got it. That was good.” More than likely, a romance and love story audience who enjoy mainstream themes.

How did you come up with the title of your book or series?
Edgar Allan Poe. I grew up reading Poe and have always held a profound respect for the author’s creative distinction utilizing macabre and dark themes to drive his stories. His poem, The Raven, is read every Halloween to my children. To quote the Raven, “And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door.” I was at Barnes and Noble talking to a few of the employees about the series and had asked if they preferred, Behind the Chamber Door or Beyond the Chamber Door. They both were partial to Beyond the Chamber Door.

What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?
Different alien species for my new book, The Rose and the corresponding Indigo Trials trilogy. I hope I’m not being monitored by government agencies hoping to keep the alien secrets safe.


What can we expect from you in the future?
Continuing with the series which will include multiple genres but all with the general theme incorporating the supernatural and metaphysical blending dark and light. I’m currently wriitng book four in the series, The Rose. It’s a dystopian sci-fi set at the tale end of World War III. The rose is a meditation used by alchemists. Alchemy is the ability to transform chemical structures. Also a useful tool when battling alien vampires. The Rose is a prelude to a trilogy titled The Indigo Trials which will be released next year. After The Rose, I’ll be writing book four in this series about a 1940’s New York socialite whose sculpture comes to life after a break up with the love of her life. Think Frankenstein meets My Fair Lady. Title is Golem, a psychologial supernatural thriller. I have nine books planned in the Beyond the Chamber Door Series.


What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Tell a friend. Or friends. Or the world. It’s like that sign in the reception area at the doctor’s office. The best complement you could give is a referral. So, tell your friends about it, your book club, and your mom. Blast it over social media, “Hey, read this book.” Tell your librarian. Oh, and of course, leave that five star review.


Is there anything else you’d like to say?"
Yes, thank you for hosting and to all the readers showing up today, I’m grateful to have you here. Feel free to connect with me on social media for updates and giveaways on new books.
